Week 04: Japanese Joinery

I’ve been looking briefly at Japanese joining techniques, having looked initially at the influences of Shintoism on Japans philosophy on the temporality of architecture. The joints use wood only and tend to become quite complicated. I’ve began to make a simple little joint of my own, but still requires a central peg.

I am interested in perhaps using the joints in the final structure and in turn maybe using it to influence my portfolio style?
